English term or phrase: pipe span
Mal wieder ein Beispiel aus meinem Statistiktext:

Pipe span on a locomotive

Es muss etwas sein, was nur einmal pro Lok vorkommt, weil man keine sinnvollen Messreihen-Untergruppen bilden kann. Sonst weiß ich noch, dass der "span" (die Spannweite?) etwa 12 beträgt... leider verrät der Autor des Texts aber nicht, in welcher Einheit!

Ideen? Vorschläge?

Explanation:
This is only a guess,but the only "pipe span" terms that I can find have to do with pipe that is 'spanning' some distance without supports.

Without further context, I would assume that the units will be units of length and that your 'Spannweite' is not far off the mark.

Worth a note to the client in any case.
